Hi again,

a little update:

when using the macro interface the same behaviour can be observed:

#include <iostream>

#include <dlt/dlt.h>


int main()
    DLT_REGISTER_APP("ABCD", "This is the application known as ABCD");

                               "some context of application ABCD",

                               "some OTHER context of application ABCD",

    DLT_LOG(ctx0, DLT_LOG_INFO, DLT_STRING("The answer is"), DLT_INT(42));
    DLT_LOG(ctx1, DLT_LOG_INFO, DLT_STRING("The question is"),



    return 0;
